U.S. Weighing Terrorist Label for Iran Guards

WASHINGTON, Aug. 14 — The Bush administration is preparing to declare that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps is a foreign terrorist organization, senior administration officials said Tuesday.

If imposed, the declaration would signal a more confrontational turn in the administration’s approach to Iran and would be the first time that the United States has added the armed forces of any sovereign government to its list of terrorist organizations.

The Revolutionary Guard is thought to be the largest branch of Iran’s military. While the United States has long labeled Iran as a state sponsor of terrorism, a decision to single out the guard would amount to an aggressive new challenge from an American administration that has recently seemed conflicted over whether to take a harder line against Tehran over its nuclear program and what American officials have called its destabilizing role in Iraq.

According to European diplomats, Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice has warned of the move in recent conversations with European counterparts, saying that a delay in efforts to win approval from the United Nations Security Council for further economic sanctions on Iran was leaving the administration with little choice but unilateral action.

A move toward putting the Revolutionary Guard on the foreign terrorist list would serve at least two purposes for Ms. Rice: to pacify, for a while, administration hawks who are pushing for possible military action, and to further press America’s allies to ratchet up sanctions against Iran in the Security Council.

I'm curious who left the above comment. I thought it was spam at first, but I use word verification specifically to prevent that. I allow anonymous comments because I hate to miss comments from folks without Google accounts, but I would really like to know who is saying what.

I hope whomever left the comment above comes back and tells me something about him/her-self. Some of what you have written is difficult to understand. Some of what I understand is provocative, and some I agree with and some I disagree with (such as America being punished for siding with Tel Aviv and thus having our wives turned into lesbians - rather an odd way of seeing things).

Come back and explain some of these things. I agree with you regarding our loss of the free press and our founding fathers being sick if they could see us now.
